Austin Hope "Troublemaker" Red Blend

SKU #1164144 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 (...made from a blend of wines from the 2010, 2011 and 2012 vintages, with the emphasis on 2011): Dark purple. Jammy dark fruit aromas are lifted by a subtle peppery note. Fleshy and straightforward, offering plump blueberry and cassis flavors and showing a bit of heat. Finishes with good power and breadth, leaving black pepper and dark berry liqueur notes behind.

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
